Using UIAppearance

UIAppearance customizations are applied to AcquireIOSupport SDK by default. However if there is a conflicting property, then the value in ThemeOptions key in AcquireIOConfig will take precedence.

For example: If the app uses UIAppearance to change the color of Navigation Bar title and also specifies a color for the same property in the AcquireIOConfig ThemeOptions - NSDictionary, then the value in dictionary will be used.

In order to use the UIAppearance value, the app must leave the corresponding entry in the ThemeOptions blank.

Introduction

Head over to Theming if you want to customize your SDK integration's typeface, colors or fonts. It can be achieved via simple key-value pairs in the options dictionary.

CONFIGURATION

Theme customization can be configured via AcquireIOConfig class:

let options = [String : Any]()
let config = AcquireIOConfig.config
config.setDict(options)
//Pass `config` to- setAccount: withOptions:config

Set Dictionary options in the format of key-value. Color code will be hex value of color, start from #. You can remove and leave blank for the default theme effect.

Sample format for setting Config options:

let themeDict = [
"ACQUIREIO_GLOBAL": [
"THEME_COLOR":"#ff87b8"
],
"ACQUIREIO_NAVIGATION_BAR": [
